Sri Gaura Govindarcana Smarana Paddhatih - Raga Marga Bhajana

From Sri Gaura Govindarcana Smarana Paddhatih

By Sripada Dhyanacandra Gosvami

"In the Sanat Kumara Samhita, Sri Narada says to Sri Sadasiva, “O Bhagavan! O Guru! You have kindly given replies to all of my questions. Now I want to hear about the best of all paths, Raga Marga Bhajana.”

The Sadhaka shall contemplate his Vrndavana Siddha Deha in this way:

nama rupam vayo vesa sambandho yutha eva ca |
ajña seva parakastha palya-dasi nivasaka || 93 ||

The eleven aspects of this siddha-deha are well known.

They are as follows: name (nama), complexion (or form, rupa), age (vayas), dress (vesa), relationship (sambandha), group (yutha), order (ajña), service (seva), divine cherished ambition (parakastha), maintainer (palyadasi) and residence (nivasa).

The particular characteristics of all these are now described, beginning with the name.

Nama - Her name shall be one similar to that of Sri Rupa Mañjari and the other Vraja Gopis...

...The Sadhaka shall meditate on Sri Sri Radha Krsna situated upon a lotus. After that, in his Siddha Deha (a beautiful and charming young adolescent girl), he shall by the order of his Guru Manjari offer Puja to the Divine Couple as They stand on that lotus.

Then, he shall do external Puja by offering the Upacaras such as Padya, Arghya, etc.

After that, the Sadhaka shall very diligently perform Japa of the 32-syllable Pradhana Mantra Hare Krsna.

He shall first chant the Maha Mantra Hare Krsna, then the ten-syllable Mantra, the Sri Radha Mantra and the Sri Radha Gayatri, which will satisfy his/her highest desire to attain Prema.

After that, he shall chant the Yugala Mantra, which reveals the Rasa Sthali, and then the respective Mantras of the Asta Sakhis and Asta Mañjaris."
